Report: Centering Disability In Technology Policy
Today, AAPD is proud to release a new report in partnership with the Center for Democracy & Technology, “Centering Disability in Technology Policy.” This report delves into some of the ways in which technology can discriminate against disabled people – and what advocacy groups, regulators, and funders can do to change this.
If technology is to meaningfully improve the lives of disabled people, tech policy must deeply listen to and center the experiences of people with disabilities. This report provides a meaningful start. It covers a wide-range of topics, including digital accessibility practices, equitable employment and education access, data privacy, online hate and harassment, law enforcement surveillance, algorithmic bias, and more.
